Space Engineering profile

Space Engineering is the field of engineering concerned with the end-to-end engineering of space systems and system components. Areas of interest include the engineering of advanced/innovative space missions, space vehicles and instruments, sensors, actuators, mechanisms, and thrusters. Applying state-of-the-art technologies and providing innovative solutions is daily business. In this profile you will learn how to engineer complex space systems on their constituting elements, subsystems, instruments and components using a systematic approach. You will gain expertise on every phase of a spacecraft system’s development including design, integration, verification/testing and operations. You will also learn about management aspects of engineering including scheduling and planning, and about working in multi-disciplinary design teams to formulate spacecraft system solutions using a concurrent engineering approach. The knowledge that you will gain can also be applied to other complex technical systems.
